The Future of Adobe Creative Apps and Microsoft [Video]

Adobe and Microsoft working together

I remember when I first got my Mac. It was pretty exciting. :) After years of using Windows, I was excited to start digging into a number of exclusive Mac based apps. Most of them were for web development, as apps provided by Adobe and others came in both flavors. However, I remembered a time when this wasn't the case and Adobe was only for Apple! Times have certainly changed, and while I didn't think I would ever switch away from Apple, a collaboration of Adobe and Microsoft that looks ... Continue Reading

Eyefi: Connect Your Camera to the Cloud

eyefi top

I've often wondered how some photographers I follow on Instagram get their photos taken from their high-end cameras onto the photo sharing social network. Sure, you can download your photos, upload them to your smartphone, and then publish them on Instagram, but that's a lot of steps! And considering the frequency that some publish, it would seem as though they were publishing straight from their Nikon or Canon. Now I know their secret. And it is awesome. ... Continue Reading

Play More with Your Kids [Comic]

I enjoy my work. I love to play video games. It seems like I've always got some kind of screen in front of my face and it's easier to keep my eyes looking forward and ignore those around me. Being a digital tentmaker, a freelancer or business owner—call it whatever you like—it's easy for my work day and personal life to get all jumbled up and priorities become disproportional. If only there was an app for that...maybe this would work: ... Continue Reading

iWant: What Have We Become?

i-want an iphone

Every time a new iPhone is released or video game console, there are hundreds—if not thousands—of people who wait outside, overnight, to be the first people to purchase the new tech on launch day. But this anticipation for the latest and greatest isn't limited to only affecting the United States. The same anxious anticipation happens in China where there is a boom in the iPhone Black Market and you can easily pay double the sticker price. And if you check eBay in the United States, you'll find ... Continue Reading

My Bible Marking Plan


About a month ago, I wrote a post about the fun way I mark my Bible - using Crayola Twistable Crayons! I seriously didn't think it would get as many comments, shares, or even off-site discussion as it did - so much so that people still comment on how much I like to use crayons (some of us really never do grow up). In all the discussion I had around the post, there was a single question that kept popping up: What system do you use for your Bible marking? It's one thing to tote the awesomeness ...

Comparing iPhone Camera Quality [Images]

more pixel power - superman

One the biggest draws to the iPhone, for me anyway, is the camera. The best camera to have is the one with you, so the idea of having a fabulous camera within reach all the time is really awesome. And if it can take great pictures, it's even better. With each release of the iPhone, the camera has gotten better and better. Not just higher pixels either, as most photo pros know. Here's a cool comparison that shows the evolution of the iPhone camera by Lisa Bettany: ... Continue Reading

Find Out If You Are a Smartphone Addict (And Stop)

Moment IO Header Screener

Have you ever missed-out on cherishing a moment in your life because you were trying to capture a moment to cherish for the rest of your life? Or how about engaging in social media on your smartphone while at the playground with your kids, instead of engaging with your kids on the playground? I don't mean to cast any kind of guilt or shame—I am as guilty as anyone else—but the first step in fixing a problem is admitting you have one, and that's exactly what this mobile app does: ...
